. hopefully nobody's handing him his approval ratings. brian: they're not strong. for him, anyway. used to be at 70%. for a while it was 60%. right now if you go on the weekly ratings, the weekly poll with galup -- and they've been doing this for a while, the galup family. his approval rating is 52%. that's a significant drop considering where it was. last month it was at 59%. it was really before, eric, this whole health care debate began. eric: o'reilly put this out last night. he was 40% of the people polled in rasmussen strongly disapproved. i mean strongly, not just disapproved. only 28% strong lay proved. -- strong lay proved. there's a real movement with people getting more and more upset with how he's handling the health care debate. gretchen: there's been little flip in people who describe themselves as liberals. as you might expect. the same would have been true for the most part for george bush, that the ardent supporters probably aren't going to change their mind. however, the two key groups, the independents -- remember, this is how barack obama got elected, because so muc
 and as a weapon that could be used against us. there has been such a thing as an emp commission that was established by congress. didn't get a whole lot of publicity. >> you put that in the past tense as well. >> exactly. >> there's some talk about reinstating the commission and they're out of business or going out of business as i discuss this, if i'm correct. particularly important to understand that, for example, the iranian regime, which has as its rallying cry and has for 30 years death to america, they know about emp as the congressional emp commission found out. and if i'm correct, they have been working -- the iranian regime, let me put it bluntly, has been working on developing the capability to launch an emp attack; is that correct? >> now you're getting into a core issue that's actually part of the book. there have been -- there has been testing going on from barges of the caspian sea of doing a launch and declaring that it's a failure. there's only one profile that fits a vertical launch for use. this to me is the equivalent of say you and i are out in a cruise and t
's, it's certainly used as steve just referenced in not only russia's western periphery, but there are leaderships in central and eastern europe who are integrated into the european union and nato who are still quite concerned. and from their standpoints that could be justifiable. whether there will be russian military intervention into former central and east european territories -- and i'm speaking about countries already integrat into the european union and nato as full members -- i highly doubt it. however, when you see the european union as i just touched upon briefly in my presentation increasing this eastern partnership or outreach to your raise ya and os -- eurasia and ostensibly for energy assistance and development which includes countries such as georgia if i'm not mistaken, couries which may never become european union members in the next 5-10 years but i couldn't say for sure how that will evolve, i have to believe that it's less a matter of sphere of influence in military terms as it is in staking out the absolute requirement for energy supplies becausi don
will not be taken for anything by the government other than public use. then there is the new haven firefighter case that others have spoken about. it is not just the decision the judge made without substantial evidence that -- it is also the manner in which they refused to give a fair consideration of the firefighters claims and the way that i would hope that every federal judge will. many of her public statement about judging include very radical ideas on the role of a judge and on society. some have said that we cannot consider those, but to consider only those judicial record and about the statement she has made about how judges should perform in office, i think it's an incomplete picture. she has said that there is no neutrality in the law. she has said that legal uncertainty is a good thing because that allows judges to change the law and to make policy. she has said that foreign law can get the procreative juices flowing for judges to interpret the united states constitution and that ethnicity and gender should have an impact on a judge's decision making. those are hard to square with her sol

[applause] if these people are top tier candidates, they ought to be running whether they are free to lose or not. otherwise, they're just professional politicians and that charlie crist is a prime example. he was supporting the stimulus package without even reading it. >> i agree with you in the sense that in a perfect world, i think you are right. let me go back to the initial point which was what haley barbour said. according to him, most of the people who won the were part of the american revolution in 1994 signed on after the '93 victories. that is late to get into the game. that is only one year out. whether it is right or wrong, these people -- if someone runs for office, they are putting their life on the line put. it
